The toilet tent is one of our more important pieces of kit. It is only ever put up for our longer Woodcraft Folk camps – so those which last a week or more. One of the adult campers has responsibility for emptying the chemical toilet, keeping it clean, stocking up the supplies of toilet paper, and ensuring there is hand cleaner available at all times. I’m glad not to have had that role; my thing on camp is the kitchen tent.
We have rules about who can use the toilet tent, and when. Basically, it’s a nighttime facility, for use by our 6 to 9 year olds, the Springbok Elfins. The older children, the Pioneers and Venturers, and the adults have to find the camp toilet or go in a hedge at night. Give me a hedge any time.
